So this index card is a standard 3 x 5 inches. I gave it a generous coat of Mod Podge then applied a text printed background tissue paper. Next a layer of Gesso to knock back the pattern. Gelato's create the bright colors and very blended background.
The Dreamcatcher chippie is creating a nice balance on the corners.
I chose the sentiment to tie into the chippie....the dream world in the Dreamcatcher. Keeping the feathers white brightens up the arrangement.
I selected the chippies and gave them a basecoat of flat white acrylic paint. Next I added Gelato's with the center remaining white and the colors getting darker as it goes out. Using a small text stamp I detailed the lighter sections with a random pressing of the stamp.
I clipped the hoop into two sections adding one to the top and one to the bottom. Tombo Multi was a great adhesive to attach the thinner sections.
After attaching the feathers I decided to top them off with a few little flowers that were finished with more Gelato's and a water brush. Adding a tiny brad to the center is last but not least.
I'll be adding this card to my collection of ICAD and maybe even do a little journaling to the backs.
Gypsy Soul Chippies~ Dreamcatcher.
Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
